NGD 5 of 6, Ishibashi exclusive RG model

I saw this in Japan and HAD to have it. I had no idea what the model was till it arrived on my doorstep and I got the neck off the body. I was just enamoured with the finish, the maple neck,alder body with thick maple top, the natural binding and the zebra TZ/AN combo.

Got the neck off and it's an IRG-720, an Ishibashi custom model.



You can see how thick the maple cap is on this. Awesome amounts of snap and bite with the maple over alder.








The hardware may need some cleaning and corrosion treatment but I don't care, this thing is just what the doctor ordered for a different take on the standard RG formula.

Indeed!!! I though I had posted on this one.

This guitar is just about everything I'd be looking for. Love it.

FWIW, I'm pretty sure the body material is mahogany with that thick old maple cap. The only other 720 I could find was mahogany but it also had offset dots.

It's definitely not mahogany, you can see how light the woods are in the neck pocket. Like I said, did some checking round and found it is maple and alder. The IRG720 was ordered in that spec originally. There are later models with Lo pro edges and other 7 series models with offset dots and they may have different woods.

That makes sense. They're all such obscure models that finding specs is next to impossible. Regardless, That's a beautiful guitar that I'm truly jealous of. congratulations on this one above all the rest...........even the RGR580,
